About Red Truck

What is Red Truck?

Red Truck is a trusted marketplace for gear that gives back.

Troquer is a French word that means to barter and the short version, troc, is very similar in sound to the English word truck. Red Truck is here to streamline the experience of trading the gear you love with the people you trust.

Red Truck was built from Michael Bergmann’s dream to rescue high-quality items from dusty garages, find loving new owners, and create value for both athletes and causes in the process. A thirty year veteran of Nike’s product development and sustainability teams, Bergmann has worked with countless athletes and has developed a deep appreciation for how sport brings people together. The Red Truck mission is to facilitate the exchange of professional grade gear while honoring the achievement of athletes and driving positive social change through partner causes.


We are free of hype and unnecessary hyperbole, instead embracing the hard work and dedication of athletes and the organizations that surround them.


Like our partners, Red Truck is rooted in sport with the belief that access to it creates positive social change.


Understanding the impact we can make in the lives and communities around us, we actively participate in the success of our athletes, causes, and brands.


Creating a safe and authenticated marketplace for the exchange of professional gear between Red Truck partners and the fans that follow them is a constant focus.
